The Greening of Detroit's Live Love Local event celebrates local chefs, fresh locally-grown produce and local green living.
The Greening, in partnership with edibleWOW magazine, is celebrating local food and the growing green movement in Detroit. This gathering highlights the innovative ways Detroit has progressed toward creating a greener, healthier and more sustainable city by bringing together a spectrum of enthusiasts including community partners, industry leaders, farmers, environmentalists and foodies from around the country.
Patrons will sample local food highlighted in original recipes from 26 of the area's most popular and unique food establishments, like Roast, Selden Standard, Bacco Ristorante, Mabel Gray, Russell Street Deli, Mudgies, Slows BBQ, Craftwork, Cacao Tree Cafe, Toasted Oak, Calder Dairy, Jolly Pumpkin, Tito's Handmade Vodka, Great Lakes Beverage and the Capuchin Soup Kitchen.
The day also includes hands-on environmental activities for kids, tours of The Greening's Detroit Market Garden, "farm to fork" discussions, and plenty of delicious food and drink.
Partner edibleWOW will present the 2016 Local Hero Award to five individuals who were selected for their special work in the food industry! Live Love Local also coincides with The Eastern Market's Sunday Market program so participants can also enjoy browsing and experiencing this new venue, and all of its offerings!
